Panda The giant panda has an insatiable appetite for bamboo. A typical animal eats half the daya full 12 out of every 24 hoursand relieves itself dozens of times a day. It takes 28 pounds (12.5 kilograms) of bamboo to satisfy a giant panda’s daily dietary needs, and it hungrily plucks the stalks with elongated wrist bones that function rather like thumbs. Pandas will sometimes eat birds or rodents as well. Wild pandas live only in remote, mountainous regions in central China. These high bamboo forests are cool and wetjust as pandas like it. They may climb as high as 13,000 feet (3,962 meters) to feed on higher slopes in the summer season. Pandas are often seen eating in a relaxed sitting posture, with their hind legs stretched out before them. They may appear sedentary, but they are skilled tree-climbers and efficient swimmers.
